Thanks for the good wishes and initiating this message Gerald. All best
wishes to you too. I am a Chinese herbalist, acuouncturist in Brisabe,
Australia. I have been in the profession for 45 years and studying Zen a
little longer. With Jeff the last few years. I am today closing my clinic
(hopefully temporarily) and continuing to offer online consults and mailing
herbs out. I will also continue to talk to zen students online. I am finding
the rapidity of change and the real closeness of sickness and death
disconcerting, even having contemplated it before. And our generations of
teachers have all be saying it. I am mentioning this by way of introduction.
So I appreciate my Sangha, you. A kind of Metta, we might say, is how to use
this forum to help each other, and refine how best to care for all during
this? Some of us are sitting, then meeting online. How do we work with strong
feelings and persistent difficult thoughts? What is it now to work with the
one great matter? Maybe we can share and reach out more here?
Gasshou and best to all, Greg
